Stampin' Up News from Leadership Conference

Leadership was great! I really enjoyed getting to go to San Antonio again. We stayed right across from the Convention Center and right near the Riverwalk. In fact we had a balcony view of the Riverwalk.

At Leadership they announced some news that I would like to share here. First of all the new annual Stampin' Up Catalog will start a month earlier on June 1, 2012. The Holiday Mini Catalog will start a month earlier as well on August 1, 2012. The future Holiday and Spring Catalogs will be bigger and last longer (5 months instead of 4 months) The current Stampin' Up Catalog and Idea Book will expire on May 31, 2012 (one month earlier)

The new Simply Scored Product is coming soon! Stampin' Up designed the diagonal lined accessory to the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and it will be available for customer purchase on March 1st. This new tool is called the Simply Scored Diagonal Plate. It will be great for making envelopes, boxes and much more.

Additionally, the Simply Adorned and Decor Elements lines will be discontinued when the 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog retires on May 31, 2012.

The photos above feature the General Session, Manager's Reception, the Alamo and Make 'n Takes at Leadership. A lot of fun was had by all!

Thanks for visiting my blog today. I hope you will come back often for more news and notes about what is coming up with Stampin' Up!
